Continuing its historic support of San Jose State University, San Jose Woman’s Club provides annual academic and vocal scholarships to promising undergraduates at San Jose State University.
SJWC 2016-2017 Vocal Scholarship Awarded to Malcom Jones
San Jose Woman’s Club Vocal Scholarships are awarded each spring by a panel of judges following a live competition by promising San Jose State University students. Congratulations to Malcom Jones, who was awarded SJWC's 2016-2017 Vocal Scholarship on April 10. Seven San Jose State University vocal scholars competed before a panel of judges and a live audience for the scholarship. Following performances that dazzled the audience with the quality and talent of the students, guests met the performers over cookies and coffee while the judges deliberated. Mr. Jones will perform in concert this fall at the Clubhouse.
Academic scholarships are awarded each fall. Congratulations to San Jose Woman’s Club 2016-2017 Academic Scholars:
